4. An uprooted tree in KL causes the death of a 47-year old man, two injuries, and disruption to the KL Monorail track. Zailani Jamil, President of the Malaysian Society of Arborists comments on the importance of constant inspection of trees.

3. A rise in statutory rape cases involving minors is raising concerns, in light of the fact that children aged 10-and-below can't be held criminally liable.

Then, child psychologist, Katyana Azman weighs in on claims that early exposure to pornography is causing these crimes.
